Researching the Visual: Images, Objects, Contexts and Interactions in Social and Cultural Inquiry
This is a follow-up to Old Corners of the GWR. The photographs shed light on signal-boxes, coaches, locomotives and staff at work, while the text details such matters as slip coach working, the design and style of cast-iron nameplates, and engineering principles from the CCE department. Just like its predecessor, Kevin Robertson's book makes entertaining and informative reading for the general enthusiast and for modellers, preservationists and historians who wish to discover some lesser-known facts about the GWR.
